Q2 CHALLNEGE- GO BIG

This year one of my goals was to knit BIG, so here's my chosen project...........




Its Aquila by Louisa Harding, from her venezia von ulta book.. This little beauty is a Christmas gift for me I'm sad to say, reason being that the yarn has cost a small fortune and I have still to buy more. It was meant to be for sis, I struggled with the colour way but eventually decided on teal, rose pink and subtle versions of both, now I cant decide on the Glisten yarn colourway which needs to tie the both together.When the yarn arrives I will post for now I'm working on interpreting the pattern so i get off to a good start..

Here's a gift i did complete, meet Mrs Snowme.


Now I did think she looked rather Gorilla like in the arm department, and her scarf turned into a neck warmer, so was undecided whether to put her in the gift box, but friends assure me she is cute so she has now gone to Christmas box ready for a friend.
so Q2 challenge items are:
  • Complete front of Aquila
  • make 1 more snowme for niece
  • 1 pair of socks for friend

I think ill leave it at that as I'm sure Aquila will take plenty of my time...

Happy knitting all, Angie
